General All J&S Mountain Pond Farm Goats are duel registered with ADGA and AGS. Because of this, all kids are registerable by the purchaser with either or both of these organizations. All Kids will be Dam-Raised, available when weaned between 8 to 12 weeks of age. Goats are herd animals. We will not sell single goats/kids unless the purchaser already has other goats. All kids are dis-budded (if not naturally polled). The goats of J&S Mountain Pond Farm are a closed herd. They were last tested Negative for CAE, CL and Johne’s on August 25, 2020. They are tested annually.
Reservations and Pricing Kids available for purchase can be found on the Sale Page. If you are interested in purchasing any of the available kids, you must provide a $50 deposit that is not-refundable within 5 business days. Deposits must be in the form of cash, certified check, or money order. A kid is considered reserved only when the deposit is received within the 5-business day window. If not received during this window, they will be considered available to others expressing interest for reservation. Pricing starts at prices listed below. The price for a specific Goat or Kid that is available for sale will be indicated as they are placed on the Sales page. • Nigerian Dwarf Does: Starting at $400 • Nigerian Dwarf Bucks: Starting at $300 • Nigerian Dwarf Wether- $200 • If more than one kid is bought together a discount of $25 dollars will be given. The payment of the balance owed in the form of cash, certified check, or money order is due before or on the day of pickup.
Wait List We maintain a wait list for those interested in future kiddings, at no charge. Refer to the Breeding Lineup Page for Doe and Buck pairings and their anticipated kidding date (based on 146 days from the time of breeding). To get placed on the waiting list, please contact us (refer to the contact page). If there is a particular breeding you are interested in, or specific traits you are looking for, please specify that at the time you put your request in to be placed on the wait list. J&S Mountain Pond Farms reserves the right to retain any kids born on the farm. Note: Being placed on the wait list is not a reservation, it is considered to be an expression of interest to be notified when a kidding has occurred. All on the list will be notified via email when a kidding occurs – and will be referred to the Sales page to see which kids are available. Reservations of a kid will be based on a first come/first served basis --- with a follow up of the deposit required to hold the reservation (Refer to the reservation and pricing section)
Kid Pick up Kids are available for pickup when weaned at approximately 8 to 12 weeks of age. They will be disbudded, have up to date CD/T vaccination, and be tattooed. Hooves will be trimmed upon pickup. An acceptable pickup date will be coordinated with the prospective buyer within the time frame of the kids being weaned and ready to go. If not picked up on the coordinated pick up date, and unless modified pickup arrangements have been made and agreed to within 7 days of the original agreed to pick up date, the prospective buyer forfeits their reservation along with their deposit. The kid(s) at that time will be considered the property of J&S Mountain Pond Farm and will be placed back up for sale. The payment of the balance owed in the form of cash, certified check, or money order is due before or on the day of pickup.
Health All goats and kids on J&S Mountain Pond Farm are well cared for, and get required yearly vaccinations. For any goat or kid purchased, the purchaser has a right to have the goat or kid examined by a Veterinarian on the premises of J&S Mountain Pond Farm at the purchasers’ expense. If this is desired, an agreed to time will need to be coordinated with us. If the Veterinarian determines the goat or kid to be unsound based on any medical reasons found during the exam, deposits will be refunded if the purchaser no longer wants to go thru with the purchase. Once the purchased goats/kids leave our property, we are no longer responsible for their health and welfare since we have no control over their care once they leave the farm. Recommendations for New Goat Owners: For those that are new to goat ownership, there are many resources available to educate your self on the care of goats including many Facebook groups focused on Nigerian Dwarf Goats, and Web sites. Upon request, a list of references can be provided. It is highly recommended that you educate yourself as much as possible prior to obtaining your new goats. These resources will provide support groups and information that will be helpful and useful throughout the course of your ownership. It is also highly recommended to have a Veterinarian that has experience with goats.
